    My Astra 2.2 Project

    Hi everyone,

    Heres my Astra G 2.2 project i got the car cheap at auction, 2002 51 plate 2.2. It has the irmscher kit on and cruise control to but no TC button but from what ive read thats not to hard to fit. Also have no history with the car but looks like its had an engine at some point.

    Got the car back and it wasnt revving past 3000rpm so i removed the cat and pre cat which solved that problem, Apart from chucking up the EML, Then we discoverd a missfire put in some plugs we found in the garage (mondeo ones) and still there so bit the bullet and orderd a Coil pack which solved that to.

    Now the car is massivley over fueling!!! I have since changed the plugs for some NGK iridiums as the other plugs where only coppers and were "wet" with fuel and fitted a spacer to the second o2 sensor and have orderd a CTS snesor which will be here tomorrow 26/3/10 and got a new powertec airfilter on the way you will see why in the pics lol.. I know cones arent always the best option but im trying to repair on the cheap and a cheap 2.2 airbox doesnt exist and i won the powertec cone filter for £4.21

    Anyway heres some pics:















    the Offending item



    o2 spacer and fitted











    the spacer is now fitted the other way so its against the exhaust flow and i have unwound it a bit so its not so far in.

    Hopefully i can sort the fueling issue out and get on with some modding
